>> reporter: good morning, rob and meg. from south padre island, texas, this tropical storm has just made landfall about 40 miles to the south of here in mexico. the results here in south texas, as you can see, we are getting some winds but nothing too terribly strong. we do see the waves kicking up behind me. that's fairly obvious. in addition, 8 inches, perhaps as much as 1 foot of rain across northern mexico and extreme south texas. keep in mind this is the same area that was hit by hurricane alex. that storm actually stalled over this area and caused some severe flooding. at this point, this particular storm is moving pretty fast. the hope here is that it will not stall, that it will move on and bring that rain elsewhere, up to northern parts of texas, into parts of oklahoma. if it does stall, like alex did, that will mean big trouble for the folks in south texas. so far, just some rain, some high surf, certainly some wind. but nothing terribly significant.
